I was looking at the Case Modding FAQ's and in Brahm2's tutorial about adding LED's to the controller plug, one of the photos show the plugs being blue, but the only somewhat transparent plugs have a slight green hue to them and when I put blue LED's in they of course look yellow nowhere as blue as they are in the pics. They're not crystal plugs so my question is how to I make them appear more blue.

theres really no answer to that, other than to try a higher MCD rated LED or to buy a crystal dongle.

Or solid black one. There isn't a high enough MCD out that well over power the dyed plastic.

How would that help? You wouldn't be able to see an LED through a solid black one.

Yes it would. You wouldn't have that nasty color you get when you mix a blue led with a green dongle. What you'd have with the black, is a pretty blue glowing around the plug. Giving off a pretty cool affect.

Dude solid black means completely non-transparent, those are the kind of dongles I have and no light that an LED can produce will get through solid black. Think about it, LEDs can't shine through the original xbox case, so why would a dongle made of the same stuff be any different?

You can get a crystal controller dongle or get a transparent blue or green one. Brighter LED's will help too wink.gif

if you use 3000 mcd leds in full action: don't drill a hole for the led, you'll end up not looking at the box because of the strong light, but it colors my roof in my room very blue tongue.gif
